Overview

Murray (a former research fellow, Australian National U.) examines sex work and sexuality as they exist in diverse urban subcultures of Southeast Asia. She considers changing sexualities, street prostitutes, global gay styles, lesbian communities, and responses to the AIDS crisis. Murray depicts traffickers, pedophiles, and sex tourists as personifications of Western patriarchy. She also challenges assumptions about sex workers, chiefly concerning their helplessness. She critiques moralism and guilt, arguing instead for the implementations of policies which respect the rights and decisions of sex workers. Distributed by ISBS.
